Freddie Roach: Conor McGregor Is Not That Good Of A Fighter

Nate Diaz

Pacquiao famously lost to Mayweather back in 2015 in what was most the lucrative fight in boxing history so the Philippines native is all too aware of the American's defensive skillset.

As he prepares for his fight against Australia's Jeff Horn, Pacquiao said Conor McGregor isn't "compatible with boxing", and therefore will lose to Mayweather on August 26 in Las Vegas. "By the way, I think that by choosing that path they've hurt the buy rate for both events because the buy rate for Mayweather-McGregor would be much larger if it were taking place in November, and buy rate for Canelo vs. Golovkin obviously would be larger if Mayweather vs. McGregor weren't taking place on August 26".

In a video posted on Instagram alongside UFC Welterweight champion Tyrone Woodley, Mayweather says: "This is the best UFC fighter right here!" "He'll let his hands go and so forth, he's a little wild, but as far as boxing wise - I mean, supposedly he went to Wildcard West and boxed with Chris Van Heerden".

The match-up between two of the biggest names in combat sports was officially confirmed on June 14 following months of speculation and verbal jousting between the pair.

As of May 26, only 38 percent of the air bag inflators under recall in the U.S. had been repaired, according to data on the U.S. The chemical can deteriorate when exposed to hot and humid air and burn too fast, blowing apart a metal canister.

"Floyd Mayweather is 40 years old, he's always had problems with southpaws. Whenever Conor hits people, they fall", he said.

The "Notorious" is now getting set to take on Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match on 26 August after it was recently made official.

Conor McGregor has built a brand around being a provocateur - his aggressiveness in the lead up to his fights and sheer confidence in his ability have indisputably made him one of the biggest alpha males Irish sport has ever seen.
